    The maxi cardigan, a.k.a the duster, earned a top spot in my closet three years ago.

    Why do I love it? Back then, the long cardigan wasn’t a massive trend, like it is this season. Cozy, easy to outfit, and super flattering, it’s my definition of the perfect “3rd piece,” which is a fashion world term for the item you wear over your primary outfit (jacket, blazer, cardigan, etc.). And in my years working in the fashion world, this style topped the best seller charts every time.

    I literally wear my maxi cardigan everywhere. Over a striped boat neck tee and black cigarette pants, with a breezy silk slipdress, or finishing my summer weekend uniform of vintage graphic tees and weathered denim shorts. Spring through Winter, my duster cardigan is my Linus Blanket….it goes everywhere with me.

      This is interesting. I’ve never seen the Maxi cardigan. I have something similar but it’s short sleeve and not quite as long.

      I love a cardigan. This maxi cardigan looks awesome. I’m adding it to my shopping list. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for this post. I love long cardies but always feel a bit silly in them. I’m not going to worry now – just going to work it!

      Maxi cardigans are wonderful to have! I love how cozy they are and they are really versatile.

      I love a cute cardigan! They are a must have item here in Chicago…not to mention my office is freezing.

      I had never heard of the term ‘3rd piece’ before you mentioned it! 3rd pieces look so good with all outfits – I personally prefer to wear my maxi flannel shirt as a 3rd piece, but I would love to own a couple of maxi cardigans as they look so cool, too. I love the collage, especially the Comme Des Garçons tee!

        I love flannel shirts as 3rd pieces, too! And any gal who loves Commes des Garcon is my kind of gal! ☺️
